Biography

Cheree Silcox (Shuh-ree Sill-cox) is working hard to make her dream come true. After uprooting her husband and her 3-year-old son, Cheree made the move to Nashville from Pensacola, FL (to go for it). She is determined and talented. With her songwriting ability and her soft sweet vocals, she has what it takes to be a huge success in the Country music industry.

Cheree has performed all over the Gulf Coast, Alabama, as well as in Tennessee. Some performance credits include, opening for Doug Stone, Headlining the New Artist Showcase for the St. Jude Kids, opening for Clinton Gregory, singing the National Anthem for the Pensacola Barracudas, and singing on stage with Shania Twain.

Shortly after relocating to Nashville, Cheree signed a record deal with a brand new independent label called MY Records Nashville. Since teaming up with MRN, Cheree has had two single releases to Country Radio. Both of which have done really well in the New Music Weekly Country Charts. "In Love Alone" peaked at No. 40 on the NMW Country Main Chart and No. 14 on the NMW Country Indie Chart. "In His Dreams" peaked at No. 52 on the NMW Country Main Chart and No. 17 on the NMW Country Indie Chart.

Cheree’s music background stems from her mother. “My mom was a singer in her church choir. She taught me a lot of the gospel music that she would sing as a kid.” On top of this, her parents listened to nothing but Country Music. “I grew up listening to Barbara Mandrell, Dolly, Dan Seals, and Alabama. We had all the old 8 tracks, plus 45’s. I called them mine, but they were really my dad’s records. It was a huge stack, from “Cotton Eyed Joe” to “I Wanna Bop With You Baby”. I wore those records out.”

It was evident early on that Cheree had an artistic gift. “I used to walk around all the time singing my own words that I would make up out of the blue. I never did write anything down though. The fireplace was my stage. I wrote plays that I made my cousins or neighbors act out with me on the fireplace. My parents were always the audience. And of course I pretended in my dresser mirror with a hair brush that I was a back up singer for New Kids on the Block. Did I just admit that?”

Even though the evidence was there, it never dawned on Cheree that she could become an artist herself. “No one in my family had ever done anything like that before, so I just thought that the singers were from somewhere extra special or something.” Cheree just carried on with her normal life, having dreams of being an accountant someday. “I was in Chorus in middle school and high school, but my passion back then was cheerleading.” She went on with her plans to attend the University of Alabama and major in Accounting. “Music found me again in college. I was in Accounting and had decided I was going to work for the FBI. The way it all happened was some of my friends asked me to go with them to a karaoke bar. So I went and decided to get up and sing. Everyone made such a big deal, and that got my mind wondering. I started writing and singing every chance I got from then on out. I told my mom I wanted to sing and she immediately set me up with a recording session during the summer to record some of the songs that I had written. The rest is history.”

Lyrics

In Love Alone

Written By: Noel Cash, Noel Cash Publishing/ASCAP

(C) 2000 Noel Cash and MY Records Nashville

I have been learnin that
there is no turnin back
once you cross the line in love
My heart is racin to it
but babe before I do it
show me your hand because
if your not feelin the way I do
then heaven help me cause I'm fallin for you

Do you love me
like I love you
and do you want me
now tell the truth
cause baby
if it's maybe
then my hearts on it's own
and I don't wanna be in love alone

I could play solitaire
stay home and do my hair
things that don't require two
but if our loves to be
it's just not up to me
baby it comes down to you
will I be thinkin what a fool I was
or will I be thankin my stars above

Awe do you love me
like I love you
and do you want me
now tell the truth
cause baby
if it's maybe
then my hearts on it's own
and I don't wanna be in love alone

from the start I fell for you
and in my heart I knew
but I can only talk for me
that's why I'm askin you

do you love me
like I love you
and do you want me
now tell the truth
cause baby
if it's maybe
then my hearts on it's own
and I don't wanna be in love alone

Repeat Chorus again

No I don't wanna be in love alone

I Don't Have The Answers Now

Do you know
what it's like
to fall in love and think you found the one
you'll be with for your life
do you know
how it feels
to be so happy that your eyes fill up
they just fill up with tears
Well I wish that I could tell you
what true loves all about
but I don't have the answers now

Have you had
love so sweet
someone who came along and knocked you off
they knocked you off your feet
well I wish that I could tell you
what true loves all about
but I don't have the answers now

You see I had a love that felt like it
was sent from up above
but somehow he slipped away
and I lost all that I dreamed of
so I wish that I could tell you
what true loves all about
but I don't have the answers now
no I don't have the answers now

Do you know
what it's like
to fall in love and think you found the one
you'll be with for your life
well I wish that I could tell you
what true loves all about
but I don't have the answers now
No I don't have the answers now

In His Dreams (Matthew's Song)

Written By: Noel Cash, Noel Cash Publishing/ASCAP

(c) Noel Cash and MY Records Nashville

He would wrap a towell around him
and wear it like a cape
climb up on the big bed
and hold his arms out straight
saying mamma come and watch me
I can fly like superman
and almost feel the wind
as I held his little hand
cause in his dreams
he can fly
and run as fast as any little boy
and the Angels up in Heaven
love little boys it seems
cause in his dreams he has wings

The day we had the accident
doctors filled the room
surrounded by a sea of white
they said we won't know soon
now it's up to God and him
and things we don't understand
and I prayed to feel the wind again
as I held his hand
Cause in his dreams
he can fly
he needs to run as fast as any little boy
and if Angels up in Heaven
love little boys it seems
they'd hear my prayers
and give him wings

Everythings a little harder
a little out of reach
and words don't come easy
when he tries to speak
and I have to turn my head
so that he can't see me cry
when my little superman
tells me mamma I can fly

And one night while he lay sleeping
I kneeled by him to pray
and I know I felt the wind blow
as if God were to say

In His Dreams
He can fly
and there he runs as fast as any little boy
and the Angels up in Heaven
love little boys it seems
cause in his dreams he has wings

Thank you God
For his wings

So Long

So Long © 2006 Cheree Silcox
Writer: Cheree Silcox
Where have you been all night long
If you think I don’t mind well your wrong
Don’t you know what it takes to be strong
I hope she was worth the pain
And you only have yourself to blame
Our family you have slain
So long
I’ve told you all this time
You only get one chance
So you went and messed up our life
And I’m holding to my stance
Did you think I was telling a lie
And that I was too weak to say goodbye
You were wrong
So long
I hope she’ll be more to you
Than just a little one night stand
Cause otherwise how could you
How could you tear up our lives
And how could you break up our home
Now our love is so gone
So long
I’ve told you all this time
You only get one chance
So you went and messed up our life
And now I’m holding to my stance
Did you think I was telling a lie
And that I was too weak to say goodbye
Well honey you were wrong
So long
Our lives
Our love
Our child
Our home
Goodbye
So long, oh so long
I’ve told you all this time
You only get one chance
So you went and messed up our life
And how I’m holding to my stance
Did you think I was telling a lie
And that I was too weak to say goodbye
Well honey you were wrong
So long
You cheated
You lied
And did you think that I was too weak
To say goodbye
You were wrong
So long
